About the Property
Villa, 6 Bedrooms + Detached Cottage, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)
This is a secure, fenced in, dog-friendly property situated on a private cul-de-sac behind an automated gate with a small vineyard, horse stable, private pool, spa facilities and private gym with yoga or exercise studio. Comfortably and elegantly furnished with a rustic flair.
Located in the San Francisco Bay Area in the heart of Silicon Valley, off of Highway 280, minutes from Highway 101, downtown Palo Alto and the Stanford University campus. We often bike to Stanford and to downtown Palo Alto. Available immediately for summer, Fall or long term rentals. We have a one week minimum for rentals and the property is ideal for family reunions, or retreats. Ideal for large families.
There are running, cycling, horseback riding trails right out the driveway as well as great restaurants, coffee shops and upscale supermarkets in town. We have a small kitchen garden with lettuce and other in season vegetables, all organic.
Electricity, water, and wireless charges included. Weekly housekeeper, gardener, and landscape maintenance included and provided weekly. Our property manager will take care of moving the garbage and recyclables for weekly collection as well as any maintenance issues that might arise in our absence.
Please request additional photos.

In the country side of Silicon Valley, Portola Valley is a perfect get-away: nestled in the foothills close to Stanford University, Palo Alto, the Sand Hill VCs, the rest of Silicon Valley including premiere hiking, biking and running routes that overlook San Francisco Bay and the Pacific. From here it is an easy peaceful drive to San Jose / new stadium (south) and San Francisco / America's Cup (north) along design-winning Highway 280. You can get to Stanford University and the CalTrain station by driving about 10 minutes due east.
This magical home is perfect for family gatherings (special permission required for weddings and large parties); as there are plenty of private outdoor and indoor spaces for sitting, dancing and relaxing. It is located at the top of the hill of a quiet cul de sac street with connected running trails throughout the most peaceful and private portions of Portola Valley. Often you see deer, hawks and other wildlife. It is a couple minutes down the hill to local Portola Valley shopping (e.g., Bianchini's Market in Ladera Shopping Center to the left and Robert's Market to the right).
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: I'm Jack and my partner, Leigh, and I want to share our home with people who will appreciate it's unique beauty and serenity. I am an IP attorney teaching internationally. Leigh is a Stanford Ph.D and entrepreneur. We are both early stage venture investors and love to see the world.
Why the Owner Chose Ladera, CA, USA:
This property has exceptional privacy in an ideal location within minutes of Stanford University as well as the rest of Silicon Valley including the Google, Apple and Facebook campus.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
We love to exercise outdoors, have our privacy, and commune with nature. This property is perfect for all of that. Late Spring, Summer and Fall months bring beautiful, hot sunny weather without humidity so it's the perfect time to visit and see the Bay Area at its' best.
